Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green, M.I.A. Join Madonna Onstage In Super Bowl Halftime Show

Madonna brings Hip Hop back to the Super Bowl.

As expected, Madonna's performance on Sunday (February 5) at halftime of the Super Bowl was a big production.

What was unexpected, however, was the involvement of several Hip Hop artists in her performance.

Nicki Minaj was on hand with M.I.A. to join the Material Girl for her new single, "Give Me All Your Luvin ," which concluded with what is sure to be a controversial middle finger to the camera from M.I.A.

Cee Lo Green was also on hand, assisting with portions of "Open Your Heart," "Express Yourself," and "Like a Prayer."

Also involved in the performance were LMFAO, who performed portions of their hits "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It."

Aside from last year's performance by the Black Eyed Peas, this year's halftime show marks the first Hip Hop performers involved in the event since Super Bowl XXXVIII, which included performances from P. Diddy and Nelly, and ended with the infamous Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction."

    I thought the show was visionlly awesome but it did lack some substance with the artist not singing but I don't know if that ever works.

  • Bam!

    2nd worst halftime show ever, only 2nd to last years BEP shitsperience... All I could think is they really expected guys who watch football to listen to this shit???

    i was watching this shit and thought to myself theres no way a football fan would be into any of that music is the halftime show for niggas wives or something?

  • dumbdumb

    The half time show sucked! No one was actually singing or rapping it was just a recording. This was a disgrace to football fans and America as a whole. That was the opposite of hip hop Slava. Get your head out of your ass. You're like a ostrich with its head buried in the sand. However, it does appeal to women so men, people with taste in music, and people who have self-respect can go get beer knowing that they're not going to miss anything. Even the commercials sucked huge balls. It goes to show you what appeals to the masses - garbage. Fucking dolts.

  • IStillWouldLickAllThosePussies

    THE ENTIRE HALFTIME SHOW SUCKED!!!! Madonna - Old and tired M.I.A. - Why was she even there no other hits besides Airplanes. Cee-Lo Green - A waste of fuckin space. No need to mention that other person that was there AND NO SHE ISNT HIP HOP!!!

    tired of all this "this aint hip hop" bullshit. nicki minaj is a rapper. plus you niggas dont even buy albums. and all you do is called people gay and talking about men fucking other men in the ass. there's nothing righteous about your perception of hip hop. yall are more ignorant the "pop rappers" that you hate so bad.

      so a rap artist should only be featured on this site strictly when they are rapping? what about all these articles about 50 cent which have nothing to do with him rapping? what about all the wutang articles that have nothing to do with rapping? you never had a problem with that.... yet for some reason you have a different standard for nick minaj. im not a "fan" but "she sucks" is not a valid argument for why this shouldnt be covered. if it was raekwon doing some non-hip hop related shit yall wouldnt complain. hypocrital.

      nicki minaj is a rapper. this is a hip hop site. this article is appropriate. i never heard yall complaining when they uploaded "monster". yall just OD-ing on this complaining shit. seriously... is this really even worth complaining about? just because u dont like her doesnt give you the right to bitch about her inclusion in this site.

      Yeah Minaj is a rapper, so was Vanilla Ice. Doesn't mean she "brought Hip Hop back to the super bowl". What she did was bring lollipop rap back to the super bowl.

      *100-500 000 views

    • The Truth

      Do the ratio's. On average Nikki's youtube views are about 9 million. 9 million approx and about million and a half in sales. Your typical Hip Hop artist will get about 100-500 views average. Now estimate the number of sales.........................

      If she is as much a rapper as I am a producer

    • Point

      While I do agree with the gayness of hhdx's community and how they don't do shit besides express their homoerotic fantasies by saying a certain rapper did them, I will agree with them that this isn't hiphop. Nicki Minaj sucks, her verse on that Madonna song was terrible, and all together she's just getting cornier and cornier and more annoying to listen to than ever before.

    • ^^^^^^^^^^Tool^^^^^^^^^^

      Fuck Off! Slava should have said rappers then or rap music, cause neither MIA or Minaj are Hip Hop! You dont have to be tired of a damn thing, Hip Hop fans are tired of being misrepresented. Niggas like you talking about album sales like some of the fake ass gimmicks/wack rappers suddenly became lyrists need to stop fucking with the culture. If your numbers are so good pull out demographic charts of people buying by age/ethnicity/gender/sexuality/class then we'll see why hip hop music doesnt so sell well. Fucking bitch ass sheep.

  • G-Bee

    The writer of this article cannot be taken seriously, calling this HipHop.... Can't you tell the fake from the real? Step your game up Slava Kuperstein and quit boring us with these no-news stories.

  • RTJ00

    Hip Hop? Get the fuck out of here! If they brought up Canibus, Rakim, Immortal Technique on the stage then they would be bringing Hip Hop back to the Super Bowl, not these whack ass rappers.

  • Mr Flamboyant

    Hip Hop...LOL! Yeah ok. Shout out to M.I.A. flippin the fuck finger to the world and droppin the f-bomb. I loved it. When we will get a pure hip hop halftime show will be the day...and I'm not talking about any Watch The Throne trash...Nelly trash... or whatever else. Hell The Roots are on Jimmy Fallon...they could do, right?

    Hip Hop? Nope!.....I think were still waiting for a peformance of hip hop at superbowl.

    don't think she sang a not maybe one if any MIA is a bad ass i'm happy she pissed people off she so sexy her 6 seconds saved the entire wuperbowl

  • Anonymous

    There's is no better way for MIA to get attention I guess. Also, Cee Lo looked a bit awkward dancing, he seemed to have trouble with his jacket or something.. Anyway, he certainly overshadowed Madonnas vocals.
